Polish White Liver Sausage (Polska biała kiszka pasztetowa)
A traditional Polish liver sausage that consists of liver, fat, bread and egg. The practice of extending the value of meat by adding dry rolls was very common not only in sausages, but in other meat dishes as well. They were added to ground meat to make a type of hamburger known as "Sznycel." Surprisignly, it worked very well and the taste was great. Dry rolls were also grated to obtain bread crumbs. This liver sausage was very popular in the central region known as Wielkopolska.
